The Office of Research Development and Services is pleased to present the fourth faculty-led panel, "An Inside Look: The National Science Foundation (NSF)," scheduled from 3:30 - 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, in room 254 of Busch Student Center.
NSF provides funding in the natural and physical sciences, as well as social, behavioral, economic, education, legal and decision sciences.
Join Saint Louis University principal investigators as they discuss their experience as reviewers and successful applicants, guiding others in the dos and don'ts for preparing competitive applications to NSF.
Joel Eissenberg, Ph.D., associate dean for research in the School of Medicine and professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, will chair the panel. He will be joined by Linda Warren, Ph.D., assistant professor of geophysics and former program director at the NSF; Amy Harkins, Ph.D., associate professor of pharmacological and physiological science; Jason Knouft, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology; and Kent Staley, Ph.D., associate professor of philosophy.
The goal of this session is to highlight key grantsmanship "to-dos" to best position projects for funding. The panelists will share their thoughts on the qualities of fundable proposals, with specific guidance on developing effective ways to address the Broader Impacts review criteria, using language effectively and what the review process entails.
Discussion will also highlight the CAREER program, which provides funding for those early in their research careers.
